I also don't think that the new releases should have been postponed - c'mon, after you already announced them? If you want to cut back, start after what you have announced, it isn't fair to get the fans and dealers all excited and then drop the plans. I also don't agree with all of those who are whining about there being too many releases. Not too many years ago fans were begging RCA/BMG to release more than just dribs and drabs of unreleased material - I remember one older fan being afraid she would die before she could hear most if it. Now some of you are crying just the opposite - let them release all that they want and you can buy it as you can afford it! Also, let me be the one to defend the number of live shows released. I love the plan of having a release to document every tour and Vegas/Tahoe season (where available). The FTD concert releases have been great and are among my most favorite Elvis CDs. Don't let the CC Rider/I Got A Woman/Amen routine fool you...there are a lot of different songs on these varied concert releases.

I would have to agree also that there are to many concerts being released, but I have to say Lets keep the next two coming, for sure the Memphis concert which was Elvis' best show and now in its entirety. FTD could release one movie soundtrack each or every other month, a delay any longer will T alot of fans off. What would be great is that we get the Elvis On Tour Trilogy 3 to 4 DVDs at least 2CDs for a Christmas Release and promote the H... out of it YA!

I really can't believe there are actually people complaining that FTD is releasing too many CDs. As for me and the majority, the More the better!!! I am not rich but I will plan my budget & buy them all. The Soundtracks are the BEST releases so far, like a whiff of fresh air--if they really need to cut back, let's have less Live Concerts etc as they are all almost the same. I was really looking forward to the DOUBLE TROUBLE set as this will be the first time ever that any alternate / outtakes songs will be released from this movie.
Now with the stupid delay, we'll have to wait unnecessary again! I hope FTD will issue the 3 Soundtrack soon & in the near future release GIRLS!GIRLS!GIRLS ; ROUSTABOUT & KISSIN COUSINS too.

I agree with MOST... I cerltainly hope this decision is reconsidered. We have way too many concerts with the same songs and the soundtracks and studio outtakes are a breath of fresh air. I hope enough fans voice their displeasure so these get released in May, as promised. I hope that for the rest of 2004 we see MORE SOUNDTRACK AND STUDIO work and NO MORE LIVE CONCERTS. Can we get all these complaints to Ernst?

I agree completely. There are entirely too many live concerts with the same songs over and over. Give us some studio outtakes please; like where's an alternate Good Luck Charm rather than all these constant live soundboards of the same material. Where are the Girls! Girls! Girls! outtakes and alternate versions? You people are killing the golden goose fast!

I really cannot understand why fans moan about too many releases at once. There is no rule that says you have to buy all 3 on the day of release. Surely, it's all about consumer choice. Unfortunately, a lot of us fans are getting on, and I know I would prefer to have the stuff available while I can enjoy it. If I cannot afford it on its release date, then I don't buy it.
If anything needs to be delayed, it should be the "live" stuff. Just how many times can one listen to That's Alright/I Got A woman/Amen, and throw away versions of his hits etc - virtually the same on every show. Even Elvis sounds bored at times and probably was at just going through the motions.

This such a disappointment. "Many fans complained about the fact FTD was releasing too much", it says on the For Elvis Collectors-website. Who are these people and what's their problem? Nobody is forced at gunpoint to buy these releases immediately. I was personally considering the option of buying the two April-releases at a later date and buying the Soundtracks first because it would be a bit too much, financially speaking. And for how long will they be delayed? One month? One year? Two years? And isn't anybody out there getting fed up with all the concert-releases? It would have been a better idea in my opinion to delay the rerelease of the 1974-concert.

Personally I’m happy that they have been postponed. Five CDs in the space of two months is excessive, one CD per month would be a much more affordable release schedule. I’m sure a lot of other fans are also fed up having to pay for re-issues of movie soundtracks. FTD stated that they wished to keep the movie soundtracks available to new fans, but they could have reissued the double issue film CDs on the FTD label and issued the outtakes on scheduled FTD releases. Surely that would have kept both new and old fans happy.

I am also very upset over this, I have prepaid for these sound track releases. A lot of people do this so the vendors know how many to order, This may hurt FTD in the long run if they keep this up. And does any one know whats up with the Aloha and 68 DVDs that were to be released in June and now Aloha is pushed back to July? and the 68 Special is not even on the schedule for June or July. Whats up?

I'm very disappointed by the delay. I was especially looking forward to the "Spinout" outtakes. The ElvisNews poll shows that a very large percentage of the fans do not believe there are too many FTD releases on the schedule, so why back off from these already announced releases? If they want to cut back, why not start a newer/fewer release policy after these previously scheduled -- and, therefore, already anticipated by the fans -- expanded soundtrack CDs are released? Could it be they're finding less in the vaults (studio-wise) than they anticipated? I hope not.
